Jernigan Family Funds Research And Therapy At Sylvester

Partnering For One Mission

Kristi and Dean JerniganThanks to the tireless work of physician- researchers like those at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, there are 18 million cancer survivors in the United States. Kristi and Dean Jernigan’s daughter is one of them. To express their gratitude to Sylvester Physician-in-Chief Craig Moskowitz, M.D., who successfully guided their daughter’s treatment, they made a significant gift to the cancer center. It will help support the art and music therapy classes their daughter participated in as part of her healing process, as well as Dr. Moskowitz’s research, which includes a pilot study with Tracy Crane, Ph.D., R.D.N., co-lead of the Cancer Control Research Program, to look into how non-medical lifestyle changes affect treatment outcome.
